Dave Chappelle’s four-part comedy specials, Chappelle’s Home Team, hit Netflix on February 28. These are standalone specials, featuring comedians chosen by Chappelle. Comedian Earthquake kicked off the first episode and it was a hell of a set.
The first episode featuring comedian Earthquake
Netflix show, Chappelle’s Home Team‘s first comedian Nathaniel Martin Stroman aka Earthquake takes to the stage to tickle the audience’s funny bones. With the first episode titled Earthquake: Legendary, he starts with a commentary on ‘health is wealth’. Then moved on to talk about uncomfortable prostate checkups. And finally ended the set after talking about disciplining kids. During the 36 minutes run time of the special, Earthquake also had a story to share about a celebrity funeral.
Chappelle’s Home Team is rated TV-MA. Thus, it will be wise if you put your kids to bed before you tune into the show. Earthquake does not shy away from crude jokes, which are largely inappropriate for kids.
Serving as executive producer on the show, Dave intended to put a spotlight on the comedy legends who have been in the industry for over 30 years. He personally chose the comedians who are to be featured on the show and his first pick was Earthquake. Emmy and Grammy winner Stan Lathan will be behind the camera directing the show.
“I’ve been doing this a long time and comedians like Quake and Donnell are not only friends but have inspired my own career. Anyone in the comedy community knows these names and knows their time to shine is long overdue. I am proud to be a part of this moment,” Dave said.
Dave is a legend in the comic circuit, and currently has a recurring role on The Neighborhood. HBO Max hired the guy for a role in South Side. Earthquake also found a place in Bounce Network’s Johnson. For a long time, Earthquake has been hosting Quakehouse. You can tell that the show is popular since it has been running for four seasons. The comedian is also on the radio! You can tune into his show on Sirius XM Channel 96.
